UMW Brothers captain, Winfred Henry, has started the Port Moresby rugby league competition in great form yet again in the round two encounter against Maiari Eagles from Porebada on Sunday.
His efforts in the first half launched them to a flying 22-0 lead over the lighter pack from Porebada.
The boys from the Motuan village failed to pull their weight on defence with their rivals running rough shod over them.
Hardworking lock forward Boby Mori, with his trade mark straight running constantly tore apart the Eagles flimsy defence to score two tries, while Sare Jobi, Elton Negma, Joseph Neri, Allan Tulo and Israel Tulo all scored.
Inspirational captain Henry was in a blistering form executing set moves at centre to see his young players feed off this classy performance and his magic touch on most of the brethren’s tries to record  a final tally of 38-18.
Eagles had their chances in the second stanza right from the kick off, as they embarked on a valiant comeback which resulted in Kovai Taumaku, Dairy Lohia,and Arua Morea crossing the line to register tries for the Eagles.
